Default Win Ranger 38+P brass

Since I bought a GP100, I've been shooting some very economical Win Ranger 38+P (nickel plated, department dump after moving completely to 9mm), Remington UMC .357, and keeping the brass.

Anyone reload this? I am considering a karma.

Hate to send it off to recycling.

OK, I remember having discussed 38 brass in general here a while back, but chemo meds take their toll, so pretend I didn't fail whoever I failed, please? Hopefully I'll do better this time.

I'm reloaded only a few hundred of them and all have been excellent!

3.5grns of Bullseye over a 158grn LRN. Nice and accurate.

If I read you post correctly you are offering this brass to someone who wants it. If I'm correct I would love to have that .38 Special +P brass. I load a lot of .38 Special +P ammo and I like to have the correct head stamp for safety.

I am considering putting up a karma with a few hundred casings of 38, 357, and 38+P if there is enough interest.

It's great brass.

I load my .38 +P and .357 Magnum self defense loads into new and once fired nickel plated brass to distinguish it even more from the practice rounds.

Nickel plated brass tends to be a little more brittle than non plated brass, as an artifact of the plating process, so case life is slightly shorter, but not enough that most folks will ever notice.

If you've got some you're giving away I'll be happy to take it off your hands.

.38 or .38+P makes no difference as the brass is identical except for the head stamp. .357 Mag brass is great as it's about twice as expensive to buy.

As you have already guessed, I'm interested in the .38 Special +P brass.
